Wednesday, July 29, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm, and Thursday, July 30, 9:00 am – 12:00 noon – Native Island Trees


The Polly Hill Arboretum in West Tisbury welcomes back Sheriff’s Meadow Foundation’s director of stewardship Kristen Fauteux and Martha’s Vineyard Land Bank ecologist Julie Russell, for an in-depth study of our island trees. Join them for this one and a half-day workshop to learn the tools of tree identification and to search for examples of island native trees in their habitats. We begin Wednesday with a class (9 – 3) at the Arboretum, then head into the field to find our trees. Thursday we continue our field exploration from 9 – noon. Class size is limited, advance registration required. $90/$70 for PHA members; $50 for professionals associated with Island land management or conservation organizations. To register, and for more information, call 508-693-9426.
